Power Switch Parenting is an innovative parenting method intended to mitigate parent burnout while also nurturing the growth of our children into adults. With advancing technologies like computers and online access, remote work developed. As remote work became more prevalent, the boundaries between work life and family life blurred. The loss of distinction between roles led to attempts to fulfill both duties simultaneously, resulting in suboptimal performance at both. Power Switch Parenting is engineered to reclaim the boundaries between parent and responsible, working adult while honoring and preserving our greatest calling to raise a wonderful child.

Nicole Mims is a sleep physician in Charlotte, NC and co-author of the new self-help parenting book Power Switch Parenting. She has a B.A. in philosophy, got her M.D. at the University of Alabama – Birmingham, and did a neurology residency at Virginia Commonwealth University. She’s been working in sleep medicine since 2011, and currently works at Atrium Health. She has extensive experience in evaluating and recommending modifications to people’s schedules to help improve their sleep and alertness. She is also the mom to two beautiful children and in her quest to be the best parent, she’s read many parenting self-help books without finding a practical solution to the crisis affecting parents today. Her motivation for writing this book was to provide some simple guidelines to improve a difficult time and remind all parents to give themselves some grace.
Anna Sink is a literacy tutor and owner of Pathways Tutoring in Charlotte, NC, as well as a stay-at-home mom. She has a B.A. in Elementary Education from UNC – Chapel Hill and her M.Ed. for Experienced Teachers in Literacy, also from UNC – Chapel Hill. She taught in public schools both in North Carolina and New York City for nine years before having her first child and starting her tutoring business. She has a passion for multi-sensory learning and incorporating literacy into all aspects of children’s lives and in serving underserved populations. Like most parents, she was caught unprepared for a pandemic and the chaotic aftermath, so writing this book is what she calls, “Taking back some control.” One of her favorite quotes is from Kurt Hahn, “There is more to us than we know. If we can be made to see it, perhaps, for the rest of our lives we will be unable to settle for anything less.” May it be so for you.
